Exosome Therapy is the most recent advancement in regenerative medicine. Exosomes are a new group of naturally bioactive stem cell-derived molecules that can be used to treat patients. Exosomes are the most sophisticated regenerative treatment for chronic pain, injury, and disease in injured joints and other regions of the body. 

What are Exosomes and How Do They Work? 

Exosomes are micro-vesicles that are 1/1,000th the size of a cell, not cells. Exosomes play a role in direct cell signaling, bringing a variety of growth factors to the healing cascade to stimulate and modify a variety of processes. Because their purpose is to mend damaged tissue and regions, they might be considered the one of the best types of regenerative medicine accessible. 

Paracrine signaling (local cell-to-cell communication that causes changes in adjacent cells) is used by stem cells and stem cell treatment to generate the right healing environment for tissue restoration and injury healing. Exosomes are paracrine signals separated from stem cells that can be supplied without requiring stem cell delivery. As regenerative medicine knowledge and technology advance, the science demonstrates that directly providing the signals as therapy is arguably one of the most optimal ways to deliver regenerative therapy. Exosomes also have the benefit of being considerably smaller than complete cells, allowing them to circulate much more easily around the body and stimulate healing at various locations of injury or disease. 

Exosomes by nature work to heal, repair and restore the body. The hundreds of growth factor proteins found naturally in healthy tissue, and which are contained in the exosome products used to treat patients initiate and modulate the healing process. Exosomes accomplish this by activating and recruiting the patient’s own stem cells to the area that needs healing, revascularizing the area and reducing the inflammatory response to allow natural healing. 

Exosomes are designed to help the body recover, mend, and restore itself. The healing process is initiated and modulated by hundreds of growth factor proteins present naturally in healthy tissue and contained in exosome products used to treat patients. Exosomes do this by activating and recruiting the patient's own stem cells to the area in need of healing, revascularizing the area and reducing the inflammatory response to permit the healing process. 

Are there going to be a lot of treatments required? 

After just one treatment, many patients with pain, inflammation, degenerative disorders, or traumas see considerable relief. Patients at Bluegrass Preventative Medicine report feeling restored to 85 percent to 100 percent function. Because each patient is unique, it is critical to have a tailored treatment plan from our medical team. 

The majority of people notice the effects and feel markedly better after four weeks of the initial injection; however, some individuals get results considerably sooner. Following the surgery, the majority of patients resume their normal daily activities. The post-procedure protocol and proper follow-up will be discussed by your medical team. Exosome treatments do not require any downtime or a significant recovery period.
